Three Sisters Stew last week and Rosemary bread. Both were very, very good.
Evan helped a bit and then pretended to drive the mower.
Lemon biscotti (I left out the almond extract and used vanilla) to take with me to Mom's quilt retreat.
dairy-free pumpkin pies to take with us to Pennsylvania this week. I need a tiny leaf cookie cutter.... all I had was a Christmas tree. It's really hard to ignore these pies in the fridge right now.
Hazel and the yarn is Elsebeth's Cool Wool. I loved the pattern because it was challenging without being frustrating (except one time when the directions were a little tricky).
Well, that was some of our past week. We're now getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas Part 1. Cross your fingers that we get enough ice tonight to cancel school! I'm a sucker for a snow day.

Pumpkin cake donuts.
lemon coffee cake in the front was for Jon and the kids... the small coffee cakes in the back were for the neighbors on either side of us.
Jon spent all day outside Saturday. He was working on clearing the underbrush and stumps from behind the fire ring.
Just in case you have forgotten what that area of woods looked like at the beginning of August....
I love our woodstove. It can put off a lot of heat. The heat tends to get trapped in the living room so this morning I installed a room-to-room fan to help move the warm air upstairs to the bedrooms.
